Who is Dr. Cantalupo?

Dr. Cantalupo is trained as a comparative neuropsychologist and has spent a large part of his research career studying the asymmetry of brain functionality in primates. Dr. Cantalupo’s research, much of which has been published in high-ranking neuroscience journals, has provided valuable insights into the neuroanatomical bases of brain asymmetry and its behavioral and pathological correlates.

Recently, Dr. Cantalupo has become interested in developing modern, non-invasive portable technology to thoroughly assess the relationship between brain asymmetry and behavioral performance in human participants in a variety of real-life scenarios related to neurological and neurovascular disease prevention and recovery.

In this line of research, Dr. Cantalupo has started a collaboration with Dr. Ryan Hakimi at Greenville Medical Healthcare. Both Dr. Hakimi and Dr. Cantalupo are very interested in developing a method to reliably test language lateralization by using Transcranial Doppler Sonography (TDS). If successful, the procedure could provide an alternative for current, more dangerous pre-operative testing typically applied to patients undergoing brain surgery.

How Dr. Cantalupo’s research is transforming health care

The goal of Dr. Cantalupo’s research is to provide safer, less invasive means of testing and operation for neurological and neurovascular patients.
